Evolution can also throw you a First Post. Like this one. Signifying a higher order of being (i.e. me).

You little toothy chickens, you.

hmm, would that mean humans can become reptilian........OMFG anyone else got an ILUMINATI flashback from "david icke"...i sure got

WTF? How many thousands of dollars were wasted on this useless study?? There should be a law prohibiting any stupid and inane science projects from getting any money unless funded personally by the wacko scientists. Any research funds should go towards curing AIDS, Cancer, Diabetes, and other life threatening or debilitating diseases.

Sorry, just a sore spot when it comes to the stupidity of science.

HOLY! CNLBELL, you look identical to my neice. Like, EXACTLY..

i love gene manipulation. WE NEED MORE :D
*starts singing* come on everyboddy, lets get some genes modyfied. oh yea everybody, you know you want to tooooooo

The tables have turned... now chickens will eat us!!!
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 2/23/06 - 4:19:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
Mmmmmmm, tastes like humans!
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 2/23/06 - 5:39:10 AM EST (GMT-5)
but... why? they said it themselves- they don't need teeth they have beaks and they've been doing fine. Bird's probably "evolved out" of having teeth for a reason. Birds with teeth is freaky.
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 2/23/06 - 5:40:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, lets give em teeth, nothings better then a dinner that can bite back.
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 2/23/06 - 8:35:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
... Just wonderful. I thought I only needed to worry about being bitten by a stray dog. Now what if there's a flock of birds?
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 2/23/06 - 9:54:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
ok - while this may have some kind of practical application, presented later in the article (somewhere after my short attention span kicked in)... I have to say this - Is the human race really so bored we're growing teeth on chickens?!?!
Ok, enhansing a mutant gene, that I can see. But they were previously growing the chicken teeth "by combining mouse tooth-forming tissue with bird jaw tissue". To me, that crossed the line between planned scientific discovery and REALLY slow day at the office.

by manipulating the genes in certain bird so that they grow teeth.... big, sharp teeth

JURASSIC PARK

this isn't even remotely "evolution" it's genetic engineering. But it is interesting that they actually took a recessive gene the bird already has. Reminds me of a scifi I once read where they turned humans into reptiles by manipulating genes already in our DNA.

watch out kids, that chicken could bite you and you could get avian flu! scary...

This is fake - everyone knows there's no such thing as evolution, and Charles Darwin was Satan's cabana boy.
No evolution, only our Lord God with his long, flowing white beard and his deep, echoing voice, and his ability to blow things up just by looking at them.
So take your silly little evolutionary theories and put them up your ass. Your ass that was, by the way, created by God.
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 2/23/06 - 2:28:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
I hope these chickens grow their teeth nice and big to bite those stupid assed "scientists".
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 2/23/06 - 3:34:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
And the prupose?
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 2/23/06 - 4:32:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
1st: This has a purpose EG: if you loose a tooth, the research could allow you to minipulate one of your genes to grow it back
2nd: Enohead, there is evolution, so think again, and stick your god theroy and stick that up your ass. evolution makes more sence than god if you think about it. where is god? is he in our atmosphere? or do you think he governs our solar system? shove that.

I understand the theory, like Xeon said, no more dentures, you could just grow more teeth. But, why test it on chickens? How about animals that already HAVE teeth, like testing it on toothless old mice? ha ha ha, no evolution? he he he
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 2/23/06 - 5:18:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Really, x_Xeon_x? You mean there is no God with a long, flowing white beard and a deep echoing voice? Gosh, do you really think that He can't blow things up just by looking at them?
You are officially the dumbest person on the face of the earth if you thought my post was serious.
14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 2/23/06 - 6:28:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
x Xeon x shut the F U C K up ok? cuz there is a God there is so many things that there is no explanation for except God and has anyone ever thought that evoloution and God exist? seriously every body says that only one or the other exist but think though there is a God and maybe he created evoloution

They do ... vultures!
Genes are like a lot of little switches. You can turn them on and off and getting results. Like teeth. No problem

I wish I had teeth....
